How to block any app with Face ID and Touch ID on iPhone

Apple never allowed us to set a password on our own for the programs we want. Previously, for such a manipulation, it was necessary to hack a smartphone. But after iOS at the system level began to support Commands, you can implement your Wishlist without jailbreak.

Follow the simple instructions in the video above or in the illustrations below to add another layer of protection to your photos, notes, files or other data where the developers have not added an option with Face ID.

🕹 Click on the name of the video to be transferred to the YouTube application, turn on the mode Picture-in-picture and forward. If the video is not displayed, please refresh the page.

It will work like this: the applications that you select, during launch, block the phone in a second. If it is not your face or your finger on the home button in front of him, then the sly one cannot get back.

Useful when someone picks up your phone and decides to rummage through Photowhile you turned away. Or decides to post a nasty story on your Instagram.

Time will have to be different

This automation partially limits the timer’s functionality.

You have three alternatives.

1. After starting the timer, play any music or video. When the track stops, you will know that the countdown has come to an end.

2. Ask Siri not to start the timer, but to remind you after 3 minutes, 4 hours, or any other necessary period of time to do what you wanted to timed.

For example, instead of saying “set a timer for five minutes”, say “remind me to call back in 5 minutes”.

3. Download a third party timer or clock app.
